Do you want to rise to the challenges facing healthcare, such as the increase in chronic conditions and multiple morbidities, the growing financial pressure on hospitals, nursing services and medical practices, and advancing digitalisation?

Would you relish the chance to take on tasks such as evaluating current work processes and duty allocation, maximising process optimisation and gains in effectiveness and efficiency, or developing interdepartmental management processes?

Then this is the ideal programme for you. You will learn how to carry out managerial tasks while maintaining a focus on continually improving the efficiency and quality of care.

The curriculum places a strong emphasis on primary care for the general public. Primary care facilities will be one of the topics you explore, as these new health centres are performing an important role in health promotion and prevention – including in high-tech settings.

This is a part-time programme, with lectures usually taking place on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but only every two or three weeks. This leaves you with free weekends between your days at university. Your timetable will include one block week per semester.

Core topics

  • Nursing practice and leadership

  • Specialist clinical practice

  • Research and research-based nursing practice
